The Truth About The Sen. Bob Menendez Corruption Trial

New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez and Dominican Republic born ophthalmologist Dr. Salomon Melgen were indicted on public corruption and bribery charges on April 1, 2015. Only two weeks later on April 15, Melgen was also indicted on Medicare fraud charges. At the center of the corruption trial is the long-standing mutually-beneficial relationship between Menendez and Melgen.

Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez is the first United States senator on trial for corruption in 36 years and faces six counts of bribery, three counts of honest services fraud, one count of conspiracy, one count of interstate travel to carry out bribery, and one count of making false statements on his congressional financial disclosures to conceal the criminal activity. Melgen faces the same charges, except for the charge related to congressional financial disclosures.

If Menendez is convicted and forced out of office before January, current New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie would be responsible for picking his replacement – likely meaning another temporary GOP vote from a state which has not elected a Republican Senator since 1972.

A Pattern Of Corruption By The FBI Exposed

Shocking stories exposing the rampant corruption within the Federal Bureau of Investigation have emerged week after week, but few have permeated into the highest level of public discussion. With the recent revelation that the FBI uncovered bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering related to the Obama Administration’s Russian Uranium deal – the hypocrisy of the leftist “Russian Narrative” has been further exposed.

A Conversation on Gun Control with Bill Whittle and Stefan Molyneux

In the aftermath of the Las Vegas Shooting, the calls for gun control, increased regulations and the repeal of the second amendment were loud and vociferous. Bill Whittle joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss common misconceptions related to gun violence, how to know if somebody is willing to have an honest conversation about gun control and the true purpose of the second amendment.

What is a bump fire stock? And is it accurate? Does a bunp fire stock make a gun a fully automatic machine gun?

After it was determined that the Las Vegas coward used bump fire stocks on his rifles to murder innocent Americans, the media proceeded to muddy the water in terms of putting out very inaccurate data regarding the specifics of bump fire stocks and how they are or aren’t related to fully automatic rifles.

This video is not intended to defend nor to degrade owners of bump fire units. (Except the Las Vegas shooter. He is an A-hole.) It is simply meant to educate people on what a bump fire device is and how it works. It’s also meant to dispel the myth that a bump fire stock transforms an AR-15 into a super weapon. The bump fire is no magic pill or silver bullet.

NOTE: Modifying a legal rifle with a bump fire system is legal to do, to own, and to shoot. It does not create a fully automatic rifle by definition, its action, or by the ATF’s ruling.

As many in the news media continue to get it wrong, we continue to try to spread truth. An AR-15 modified to fire with a bump fire stock is not and never is considered a fully automatic rifle per the BATFE.

The Danger of Amnesty | Rep. Steve King and Stefan Molyneux

With President Donald Trump’s approval, Speaker Paul Ryan has formed a task force to create legislation to grant amnesty to those impacted by the unconstitutional era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) program. Congressman Steve King joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss how President Trump’s actions have strayed from his campaign promises, the immense danger of amnesty, the importance of culture and the demographic future of the United States of America.

Congressman Steve King was elected to Congress in 2002 and currently represents Iowa’s Fourth Congressional District. Rep. King serves on many committees – including the Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee.
